    I was all set to crack out my 2019-S EHRPR, I had my official slab cracking tool at the ready, couldn't pull the trigger.
    So I made my own page for my Dansco. I'll cover the front with something clear . 2016-S ehrpr xxx.jpg 2016-S ehrpr.jpg

    It's nice looking in that slab ...
    I like the Dansco too, but I think that one should be in the slab.

    Yes, keep it in the slab. I often use clear polyethelene (sp) sheets, made for baseball cards. I cut them down to four pockets, and punch 2 holes to fit into my album. I put the slabs into one of the 4 pockets. However, you COA is bigger, so it would not fit in the baseball pockets. There are other poly... sheets which can accommodate such items. Your work looks nice!

    I concur. You can't un-crack the slab, but you can always un-not-crack it if you change your mind. :)

    You are weak. Crack it out. Resist the dark side.

    That’s a cool way of handling that. I’d want to keep the grade on it — especially since you paid for it in the purchase price!

    If people are willing to pay...they're more than happy to oblige.

    Gary in Washington, could you kindly upload a photo of the set up you describe? I would appreciate it.

    No problem, photo below. Just pick up a pack of the polyethylene baseball card holder sheets at Walmart. Trim to just 4 pockets, punch holes to fit your album. Slots can hold 2 types of slabs. Crude, but this way I can keep a few slabs of nickels with those in the album.

    I believe I saw full page sheets for slabs on Coin Week supplies store for 3-ring binder accessories that are specifically made for the TPG slabs.

    You might consider getting a custom-cut art mat from an artists' framing store to fit the slabs exactly - it will add to the overall eye appeal - maybe mount them in a glass covered frame too ?

    Maybe I worry too much.......but it might be wise to crop your pic to remove your home address.

    Good idea to keep it in the slab. If for no other reason, to protect from scratches, dings, environment, dust, etc. All it would take is to drop it one time, and....I don't even want to think about it!
